Fortuna - Murcia - Spain

Fortuna Spain - A town and municipality situated in the Murcia region of Spain, Fortuna is best known for its healing springs which attract thousands of visitors wishing to avail themselves of the healing qualities of the waters there.

The Spa baths were first established in Fortuna by the Romans, during their occupation of the Iberian Peninsular. Bathing was of course a big part of the Roman culture and they established hot baths and spas wherever in the world they could find them.

In around 1860, one Juan Cascales Font built a hotel in Fortuna and also started some renovations to the spas which has been virtually abandoned. The hotel later housed wounded soldiers during the Spanish Civil War.

Fortuna has a population of about 10,000 and a municipal area of 148.50km2.

Fortuna is located to the north of the city of Murcia, near to the town of Abanilla.
